Switch My Business’s commitment to security and data protection for GDP
From our executive team to our developers and sales teams, everyone at Switch My Business takes the security of our platform and the protection of our customers’ and employees’ personal data very seriously. Our customers trust us with their data and protecting that is crucial to the continuing success of our business.
We actively work with specialist organisations to ensure that we’re fully compliant with the changes brought in by GDPR. We are also working to ensure our customers fully understand how their data is processed and why.
We consider data protection on two fronts:
- internal processes and procedures
- technical development.
By taking this approach we do everything we can to ensure we have the right people, processes and training in place to protect our customers’ data, while also ensuring our platform is secure today and for the future.
GDPR is a part of our business risk management, meaning we think about our customers’ data privacy and security as part of the processes we use to manage risks and achieve our objectives as a company.
Additionally, all access to customer data is protected by roles and permissions within the Switch My Business system. Switch My Business employees can only access data on a need-to-know basis in order to provide the service(s) as requested by our customers’.
We require all employees to read and agree to our data protection policy before they are able to access any customer data, we also ensure Switch My Business employees are given the minimum access to data required to carry out their role.
From a technical perspective, we go to great lengths to ensure we protect our system from internal and external abuse with the controls laid out in this article.
These controls play a big part in our GDPR compliance by ensuring the storage of customer and employee data in Switch My Business is at least in line with GDPR standards.
From a purely infrastructure perspective, we ensure:
- that the Switch My Business system is protected from external attacks
- that the data in the system is protected through encryption
- that we use data management processes to protect data from internal and external abuse.
